A Seasonal Guide to Sending Parcels from Fox’s Pacier Sprints
Be Aware of International Post Christmas Deadlines
If you are planning on sending parcels with Royal Mail’s International Economy service, then most of the deadlines have been and gone. However, if you are looking to send to Western Europe, you still have until the Saturday the 17th of November! Make note if your using Royal Mail tracked delivery, those deadlines are later on in December.

Send Presents Earlier
Something we always recommend to clients is to make sure that they send their parcels sooner rather than later – especially for an occasion as important as Christmas! Using a post service is unpredictable; there is the chance that there could be delays from bad weather or delays due to business. So, make sure you send a parcel in good time to avoid the stress of it being late!
Use Tracked Delivery
Another thing to seriously consider when sending parcels for international delivery at any time of year is to make sure they are tracked. Of course, the Fox’s Pacier Sprints international courier service allows for tracking and updates as and when. However, if you are sending a parcel with Royal Mail or bigger companies like DHL, Parcelforce or DPD; track your parcel. It will be a waste of time, money and effort if your parcel gets lost!
Send Parcels at the Same Time
If you’re going to have to send lots of parcels internationally, the best thing is put them together. This way you’ll only have to track one parcel, and will be less expensive than sending each one individually. We understand that sending parcels internationally can be stressful. If you’re feeling anxious about it, take a look at our last post for some good hints and tips. With support from our team, you’ll feel prepared for some seasonal shipping.
